Ah, buzz~ *can* eat a lot of CPU, because it's not very efficient, it
calls sin() directly 2 times each dsp cycle. But this should normally
be okay, unless you put a lot, say more than about 5 buzz~es into your
patch, depending on the host CPU. But you probably already tested
removing the buzz~ or replacing with phasor or such?

Well, you start with -nogui anyways, don't you? 

Looking at and running your patch, I can't see what's wrong. Here, on
a Athlon 900 MHz it doesn't eat CPU at all, so it seems. I don't have
the flashserver. I rellay don't see anything suspicious ;(
